<whispers into the dark> hellllooooo. Anyone there?

I got my BFP this morning and my EDD date is December 5th. Baby number 1.
Anyone else yet?

I'm Bristol. Cramps have eased up a it now so relaxing slightly. Though have weird shooting pains up my back! I had no symptoms until morning sickness hit at 6 weeks with ds so all these cramps and things are a bit disconcerting.

Hi All

I'm due 29/11 but thought I might sneak in here as the November people are much further on than me. Like shooting stars I have a 7 month old. It took 2 years to conceive him so 2 months this time is a wonderful shock. Took the test today, having manfully (?) waited 3 days past my due date. Too many disappointments last time! Bursting to tell people. Last time was at Christmas so everybody had me figured out by 6 weeks due to my abstinence. No symptoms as yet apart from hunger - possibly an excuse methinks! Early days but fingers crossed

Hi and congrats to all.. Happy to be sharing the journey..

Clare- I've had a prev mc and thought about asking for an early scan & just can't decide... I know my SIL had one just got reassurance purposes. I just wondered if it might make me feel more attached and hence more upset if things didn't work out? On the other hand- the obsessive checking of the loo paper ( I'm 36 hours post BFP) could get tedious! confused

Xx

Congratulations everyone! aoifen so glad there is someone was out there with another tiny one I'm really stressed about the fact they will be so close together. This one wasn't planned- oops!
I had a m/c before my first and they gave me an early scan. Was really reassuring so I'd deffo ask for one if they can.
I'm in rural Derbyshire with lots of snow. Going to attempt digging out the car today so I can take ds to swimming.

Morning all smile

This sounds really odd but I think today its kinda sunk in its like I actually really am pregnant! and its so odd as last night my DS was like mummy one day will I have a brother or sister I was thinking haha if only you knew LOL xx

Scares me as me and my partner atm dont live together and just means over this year there will be so much change, all for the better of course but still worries me.

Laptop to work today think its time to read up on advice sure its all changed so much since I have my little man 7 years ago.

Hope you all have a lovely day xxxx

Dasie Tue 26-Mar-13 10:08:21

Hi Clare! The next 8 months are definately gonna feel like forever!

Gosh I'm in North Yorkshire smile

My DD is 13 in a few weeks so this feels almost like the first time as it's been sooooo long!! grin

Dasie Tue 26-Mar-13 10:13:30

Taking like you DP and I aren't living together yet, despite being in a commited long term relationship. Haven't told him yet as I am waiting for the weekend when we are together for a few nights so it feels more special, and it's given the bean a few more days to get sticky smile

Dasie Tue 26-Mar-13 10:15:37

Hi Rosebelle & Quiet.. Welcome!

I'm feeling great today. Still on cloud 9.

Am thinking of booking gp appt for next wk to get in the system with mw etc..

Also, avoiding my mum atm as we haven't told anyone and I can't trust myself to keep it in. Think I will have to tell her pretty soon as all I've really talked about for the past year is TTC- god I must've been like a broken record!

Hope everyone well..

Dasie I think I can join you on the melting brain thing, meant to have made my stores order almost three hours still plodding along I have so many other things on my mind hahahahaha!

x Mildred Im sure your mum will be over the moon for you but I agree about the keeping it quiet thing its hard isnt it hehe xx

MildredH Tue 26-Mar-13 11:38:45

It's SO hard! It's just swimming round my head.. Any question I was asked at work yesterday I wanted to answer " I'm up the duff!" grin

I think we will tell both sets of parents next week and then I'll need to keep schtum for the following 8 weeks! Eep. blush

Thanks taking.
Hi Mildred.

I've bought some more preg tests. Thought I'd done tomorrow before docs then one next week and then one the week after just to make sure everything's ticking along. It's taken so long to get pregnant I'm just worried something will go wrong.
Probably tell my mum And dh's parents this weekend as going back home for Easter. Will also have to tell a friend as we run a toddler group together which if morning sickness is as bad as last time I won't be able to manage.
Still finding it hard to believe.

13loki Tue 26-Mar-13 13:13:55

whispers hi! I think I'm due around December 5. I have 2 already, DS who s 7 and DD 2. Not totally sure on the dates, we had a miscarriage in February and no period in between, so I'm trying to work out dates from when the tests changed from BFN to BFP.

Last time we told our parents before the pee was dry on the sick. They were planning to visit in summer (we live in Sweden, they are all in Oz) and we wanted to give them the option of visiting when we had a new baby instead. This time we'll wait before telling anyone.

Congrats 13loki! I think we'll wait to tell anyone else but if I get morning sickness the same as before I won't be able to hide it for long.

Rosebelle Tue 26-Mar-13 14:07:56

Congratulations 13loki! like you, another mum of 2 here! Can't imagine how it will be having 3 but "they" say it's harder going from 1-2 than 2-3, hope that's true!

13loki Tue 26-Mar-13 14:09:26

Thanks Quiet
I had to tell at 7 weeks with DD, I vomited in someone else's classroom in the morning, mid conversation. <slightly embarrassing> I'm hoping MS won't be as bad this time, but it would be a little reassuring.

I should call the midwife, which is a whole other level of fun in a language you don't speak. It was just a huge hassle firstly to get an appointment and then to cancel it last time.

SpanishLady Tue 26-Mar-13 15:26:46

congrats to the March bus ladies - lovely to see you on an ante natal thread - good luck for your 1st trimester!

Hi, have added myself to list (someone kindly did it earlier but I fell off!) grin
feels quite cheeky to put myself at the top but suddenly realised it was in date order blush
Booked myself in for midwife appointment next Thursday, suddenly seems real!
